Housed on recycled pine shelves, goods such as the CH fave carry-all Baggu, bento and lunch boxes from Japanese/Danish brand HanaBlomst, pixelated eBoy posters, Cardboard Safari animals and a bevy of curious magazines and stationery make up the inventory. While many of the products are unavailable elsewhere in Australia, B&M isn’t chiefly concerned about supplying the Southern Hemisphere with a slew of hard-to-find design items.
Instead, the B&M brick-and-mortar shop is a “shop-in-shop,” created as a place for customers to touch and see their range of wool felt (B&M is the only 100% wool felt supplier in Australia) and as a testing ground for new felt lifestyle products. Future plans include more color choices for the felt—currently they carry 22 colors—and an expanded range of designer craft supplies.
Check out their blog for wool felt ideas and design inspirations like the pixelated rug from Anthropologie to South African designer Toni Pallejà’s modern felt room dividers, as well as craftier items like the handmade Felt Alive models of personalities like Donald Trump and Conan O’Brien.
